28 Days Later was a great great movie. I can't wait for the sequel.

One of my friends was giving me crap last night for suggesting 28 Days Later. I loved it. He hated it. I guess it's just that type of movie.

What about 'Requiem for a Dream'?? Don't know about you guys, but I had nightmares about that movie for weeks - and I grew up watching horror movies.

Saw-Best pyscological film ever!
I haven't seen the sequels for fear of losing that first intial creepiness that you get not knowing wtf is happening.
A close second is Texas Chainsaw Massacare remake. It was awesome, bloody, terrifying and made me pee my pants a little. :oops:

I just watched Saw III the other day. It made me ill. The plotline was okay, as far as mass produced horror goes, but there were more than a few scenes that went for the gross-out instead of the scare.

Don't get me wrong; I can handle gross. But gore with no point is just....a teenage slasher flick. And I think I've seen enough of those.

I really have not seen a great horror movie in the last 10 years to be honest. Lately that genre has disapointed me greatly so much so as I hardly watch horror movies at all anymore. Saw was mildly amusing. I hope Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez can pump some life into it with Grindhouse.

Saw was one of the worst horror movies I have ever seen. I liked the plot and the whole idea, but where's the horror in gore? I understand that it was a psychological thriller but the whole thought of sawing off my leg to get out was ridiculous! I would rather have shot myself. I did, however, like the remake of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. That was a good one! Although, I never saw the first one, I imagine it was pretty gruesome.

Actually, the first Texas Chainsaw Massacre wasn't gory at all. It was just a creepy ass movie.

For me Texas Chainsaw series is weak and holds no horror value for me at all. Saw was all gore with little horror really, still amusing though.

The scary movies of the East have been doing it for me lately.

If they had done the Grudge the way the way they did Ju-on and Ju-on2 then I think it would have been a good movie. 2 others to add are Audition and The EYE

Pans Labyrinth is my new favorite movie, but I would not call that a horror movie.

Session 9 has always been one of my favs and add me to the list of those who liked 28days later.

I saw Zodiac over the weekend and thought it was a great movie. But not very scary at all. I’ve seen scarier episodes of Criminal minds. There are some squirrels in this movie, They may be the best part.

Once again, I felt The Texas Chainsaw Movies were overrated.

I agree with you about the Texas chainsaw movies.

And lately I feel like all horror movies are Texas chainsaw movie remakes.

Wrong turn Txs chainsaw with hillbillys
Wax work Txs chainsaw with wx etc. et c.

I liked Saw becasuse it had some intellegence behind it. Not just gore

but of course the best one..



Shaun of the DEAD!

I hate Japan-style horror it does absolutely nothing for me. I saw Ju-on and fell asleep watching it. Not my style at all.

Pan's Labyrinth looks good but I will wait for Netflix.
